Welcome to your vote resources

Here you can find resources to carry out your own 'Welcome to your vote' public awareness activity.

Our ‘Welcome to your vote’ campaign encourages newly enfranchised groups to register to vote. 

We want to reach as many people as possible, so have made resources available for anyone to use, and particularly encourage anyone working directly with these groups to do so.
